These earrings were designed by David Rosales, an incredible talented Native American jewelry artist from Gallup, NM. His work is characterized by the amazing color collections that he creates. These make finding matching pieces super simple, as you will see here. These earrings have the Shalako Collection, which is comprised of turquoise, sugilite, and created opal stones that are hand-inlaid together. This collection gives a different taste to all of those turquoise jewelry lovers out there. The opal and purple sugilite add a lot of welcomed contrast.
These turquoise earrings have a lot of detail in the silver work. Often times you don't find a lot of silver detailing in David Rosales' jewelry because the inlay work is the real star of the show. That being said, I think it really works in these earrings and helps them stand out. This, combined with their larger size, makes them nearly impossible to miss. If you are looking for a very unique pair of turquoise earrings don't pass these up!
As I said above, David Rosales' color collections make it easy to find matching pieces. Take a look at this Shalako Pendant, the stones and silver work would pair really well with these earrings.
These turquoise earrings are 100% sterling silver, including the posts on the back. We do ask that you allow around four weeks to receive these. If we have them in stock we will send them to you right away. Otherwise, a pair will be made for you. Because they are handcrafted, they do take some time to create. We appreciate your patience with this and I know that you will really enjoy them once they arrive. You can contact us with any questions at 308-234-3313.
